With ebola now having been diagnosed within the continental U.S., investors have been scrambling to find stocks that focus on finding some form of cure or treatment against the deadly disease. One NYSE-Amex listed penny stock, Hemispherx Biopharma, Inc. (HEB), has seen a flurry of traders flocking towards the specialty biopharmaceutical firm in hopes of being able to catch a ride on the hype-train for a chance to see some better days as the month of October progresses. Having been flipping around 0.30 and 0.37 for the better part of a month, HEB stock could be “the one” which offers the cheapest share price to go along with the biggest possible ROI as news continues to hit national media outlets.

On Monday, Hemispherx Biopharma made it known to all that they were broadening their research collaborations designed to develop therapeutic cocktails against Ebola which may potentially overcome the emergence of drug resistance due to Ebola virus mutation. This news was received well by investors just one day prior to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention confirming the first case of Ebola diagnosed on American soil in a press conference on Tuesday.
Hemispherx Biopharma could be a big player in the quest to find a cure/treatment/prevention for the ebola virus as they work effortlessly out of their 43,000 sq. ft. FDA approved facility in New Brunswick, NJ. With the virus having popped up from Liberia, the Company already has a strong hand in the region after having, on June 25, 2014, concluded strategic discussions in Johannesburg with Bioclones (Pty) Ltd., a leading South African biotechnology company, with three principle goals; 1) initiating studies utilizing Ampligen® as a potential adjuvant enhancement of Bioclones’ therapeutic cancer vaccine, currently in clinical trials in Cape Town, including pre-clinical studies followed, potentially, by a Phase 1 clinical trial; 2) seeking South African Medicine’s Control Council approval to conduct trials using Alferon® to eradicate the HIV virus in patients highly responsive to anti-retroviral therapy; and 3) initiating a joint effort to obtain commercial registration of both Ampligen(R) and Alferon(R) in the South African markets.
Having seen how virus breakouts have forced stocks of companies that deal with their cures and treatments to run like banshees, HEB stock looks like its setting up for another big pop like was witnessed back at the start of September. On the 8th, the Company announced that they and USAMRIID scientists agreed to test Alferon®, the only multi-species, natural alpha interferon commercially approved in the U.S. and Ampligen®, an experimental drug, to be evaluated against the deadly Ebola virus and HEB stock popped up from high 20’s where it had been teetering to the high 30’s as quickly as you can say “injection.”
Other than HEB, other big name players in the ebola game are:
- Tekmira Pharmaceuticals Corp (TKMR)
Sarepta Therapeutics, Inc. (SRPT)
BioCryst Pharmaceuticals, Inc. (BCRX)
Lakeland Industries Inc. (LAKE)
Ocean Bio-Chem Inc. (OBCI)
NanoViricides, Inc. (NNVC)
Vical Incorporated (VICL)
With a potential upside of more than 80% heading towards the 52wk high of 0.66, HEB should be on everyone’s watchlist, especially if the OTC Markets wet the bed and defecate at the open like it did yesterday.
